    Hi can somebody please help me with revision for obesity in eating behaviour, i can't fine any notes anywhere as its not in the text book!
    What do you mean? I mean, the cultural topic is about women's perceptions of their bodies across cultures and this has some stuff on them wanting to be slimmer. Other than that, obesity isn't really part of the topic. Anorexia and bulimia are disorders in the specification (you only need one of these).

    I'm doing obesity as an eating disorder instead of anorexia or bulimia because it says in the spec you can choose from anorexia, bulimia or obesity

    I am doing:

    Unit 3: Gender (need to revise), Aggression (done) and Relationships (currently doing)
    Unit 4: Phobias, Media (need to do both)

    I should finish unit 3 by the end of this month and unit 4 before 16th of may - Do i have a chance to get a decent grade on top of retaking all of economics (Unit 4 done and unit 3 almost done) ?

    I am only looking for a grade B overall in Psychology (I got C last year)

    For the essay on ultradian rhythms would you focus on/mention stages of sleep, or is stages of sleep an essay on its own?

    Yeah I am, and completely agree! Is it just me or it doesn't really have much to do with psychology? I mean, none of the research is actually proving anything and it's all just bull**** Definitely the worst topic, I might just revise something else as I struggle to make sense of any of it and since I'm retaking and did addiction last year at a different college so I might just stick to that

    I attached the revision notes I made over Easter in my previous post, it took me ages doing them!
    Anomalistics is so LAME! It is completely boring and hard to understand, it seems like a really outdated field of psychology

    you can do it gurl! you have time, plus revising psychology is not that hard (except that it takes ages to write the essays) i honestly can't even move my hands anymore lol. anyway what i do is just memories the essays and keep writing them down until there stuck in my head. you should try that
